All eyes on the South American groups at BTS Professional Sequence S13 Americas. Demand for dependable and reasonably priced SA groups within the area soared after its TI11 representatives delivered phenomenal outcomes.
Extra importantly, it was a stab at its North American counterparts, which have historically been deemed the superior area. As such, the BTS Professional Sequence S13 Americas is price watching as a result of there are a number of notable groups competing.
BTS Professional Sequence S13 Event Format and Groups
We coated the BTS Professional Sequence S13 SEA yesterday, which share comparable event format. With the exception that a number of high-profile groups have reserved slots in Playoffs whereas the opposite contributors, aka Part 1 seeds, compete in Play-ins to qualify for group stage. Notorious, DogChamp, No Runes, 5RATFORCESTAFF, Alpha, The Reduce, Cringe Crew, and Crew Brasil are Part 1 groups.
Part 2 seeds embrace Thunder Awaken, Hokori, Wildcard Gaming and Infinity, which await in group stage. Part 3 seeds benefit from the luxurious of Playoffs slots, which mockingly embrace TeamSoloMid, beastcoast, nouns, and an unrevealed workforce.
All eyes on South America
SA groups are the brand new craze on the town, even the North American powerhouse, Evil Geniuses, is raring for one.
Bestcoast and Thunder Awaken‘s unicorn roster comes into the body as essentially the most achieved SA squad in TI historical past. TA scouted the roster after TI10, which previously performed for NoPing esports. Whereas the latter org finally fail to construct a workforce that rivals its predecessors, TA went on to make historical past.
Sadly, even a promising line-up akin to TA’s doesn’t final lengthy as all TA gamers departed proper after TI11. However, TA will finally showcase its new line-up at BTS Professional Sequence S13 as group stage begins on November 25. This may clarify why TA solely obtained a Part 2 slot regardless of their nice accomplishment at TI11.
Whereas, their native rival, beastcoast boasts a assured roster, that includes two former TA gamers, Herrera “DarkMago” Gonzalo and Rafael “Sacred” Yonatan. The 2 carry gamers have been credited for a lot of essential performs throughout their time in TA, so beastcoast’s determination to recruit them may simply be a game-changer for beastcoast going into DPC 2023. Sadly, it’s the tip of an period for the previous TI9 Notorious roster with two founding gamers out.
North American powerhouses
It’s a tough low season for North American Dota 2 groups, as all their representatives drop like flies at TI11. Whereas EG seems to be to play on the SA area for a extra promising workforce and reasonably priced division, TeamSoloMid stays true to the NA roots.
However, they’ve not too long ago introduced the departure of Kim “DuBu” Doo-young, whereas there has not been any information on the opposite gamers. That is uncommon, contemplating a roster change of solely the laborious assist participant would imply completely nothing when DuBu wasn’t their captain/drafter beforehand. Therefore, we would simply see TSM shock the fanbase with a extra drastic roster shuffle.
Nouns additionally not too long ago introduced the departure of Guilherme “Costabile” Costábile and Nicolas “Gunnar” Lopez, their carry duo. This can be a breath of recent air since new carry gamers redefine the workforce’s playstyle altogether.
The Massive Reveal
It wouldn’t be too farfetched to foretell the ultimate invite may simply be for Evil Geniuses. The slot in Part 3 is for prime candidates within the scene, so we will solely count on the most important namesakes to be in that slot. Since EG hasn’t introduced their official roster but, it appears pure that BTS Professional Sequence S13 Americas saved their last invite underneath closed doorways.
In fact, the much less thrilling potential invite might simply be Quincy Crew (previously Soniqs). EG hasn’t participated in BTS Professional Sequence for a number of seasons, so the percentages of getting EG debut their new roster right here may simply be too good to be true.
Regardless, the BTS Professional Sequence S13 Americas incorporates a narrative into what we will count on from the Americas area at DPC 2023. With SA groups being the distinguished one, NA groups have to select up their tempo momentarily.
